SCOTT VAN SLYKE RUMORS

Dodgers, Van Slyke avoid arbitration with 1-year deal

LOS ANGELES (AP) The Dodgers and outfielder-first baseman Scott Van Slyke have agreed to a one-year deal, avoiding arbitration.

Alleged Yasiel Puig bar fight may not be as serious as originally reported

Yasiel Puig has had his name dragged through the mud this offseason. Following a down season where the outfielder only hit 11 home runs and batted .255 in 79 games, negative stories slowly circulated with Puig’s name coming up in trade rumors. In mid-November, there was the rumor created by Andy Van Slyke (father of current Dodger Scott Van Slyke) that staff ace Clayton Kershaw...

Dodgers 5, Marlins 3: It’s Scott Van Slyke’s World

Zack Greinke pitched a gem through six innings, but he ran into trouble in the seventh. Marcell Ozuna tied it up out of nowhere with a bomb of a homer to left, which is what hitters like him do. Then two consecutive singles and a walk setup a bases loaded situation and Scott Van Slyke heroics. It was a really really really close play, but it seemed like he was out by literally...

Los Angeles Dodgers: opening day observations

For the first time in team history, the Los Angeles Dodgers have won five straight season-openers. Monday, they defeated the San Diego Padres on an eighth-inning Jimmy Rollins home run. Here are some observations I made from my seats in Top Deck, sitting behind a group of people that had a selfie-stick and a fish-eye lens on their iPhone. Before the selfie-stick people ruined my...

Dodgers @ D’Backs August 27, 2014: Scott Van Slyke’s Best-Case Scenario

You know me, and you know I put very, very little importance on pitcher-vs-batter stats. One pitcher doesn’t face one batter enough to generate any kind of real sample size, and even if you could, that means that it took place over so many years as to render most of the data irrelevant. Dodgers D’Backs 6:40 p.m. PT Phoenix, Ariz. 2B Gordon ...

White Sox @ Dodgers June 2, 2014: No Really, Scott Van Slyke Is Playing Center

I know we talked about this just a few hours ago, but apparently it’s not a joke: Scott Van Slyke really and truly is starting in center field.
